Athens, OH 10 February 2019 –
If you are looking for a great place to study or socialize, I would suggest one of the best places on campus: the Jefferson Marketplace/Jefferson Hall Lobby.
For my first two years on campus, I lived on East Green in the Read/Johnson Complex. I would usually study at Alden Library, but occasionally, I would study in the engineering buildings (Stocker or the Academic and Research Center) or somewhere else.
However, after the renovation of Jefferson Hall, I found a great place to study where I could complete my work in a serene and comfortable environment. While there, you can grab a sandwich from Brick City Deli, then grab a cup of coffee (or tea) from Steeped and Stirred, and finally, find a suitable location to study which varies from room to room. All the study spaces include whiteboards and space for group projects, whether in the individual, multipurpose or corridor areas.
Overall, from the fireplace in the lobby to the cozy seats in the corridor, Jefferson does a great job in helping you feel comfortable and cozy. And plus, if you need snacks, the market is within reach.
If you are ever on East Green, I highly recommend studying (or socializing) there, it is definitely a memorable spot!
